Ashkelon mayor wishes Hamas had been eliminated, demands government aid

Ashkelon Mayor Tomer Glam, whose city was bombarded almost non-stop with rockets from Gaza over the 11 days of fighting, voices disappointment at the ceasefire, telling the Kan public broadcaster: “We would have wanted Hamas to be eliminated but we know that won’t happen.”

“Right now, what’s important is that Ashkelon gets what it has been promised by the government, and that the shortcomings regarding safe spaces are eliminated,” Glam says. “I’m going to make sure that happens.”
